Hello everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself and let everyone know that I'm on the hunt for the right Murcielago! I started really searching a couple months ago for the right car. I currently have an Aston Martin Vantage, but I am ready for an upgrade! The Murcielago has been a car that I have coveted since it came out, and I think I am ready to pull the trigger on one! I am looking for a coupe with a manual transmission and a light interior (like tan or gray). I am open to any exterior color, though. I appreciate any leads, and look forward to using the forum! Thanks in advance! - Micah

Greetings and welcome to Lamborghini Talk, zombiegarage! :)
The Murcies are beautiful cars...premier V12 Lambos of their time! :)
Take your time and find the one that really moves you! Don't hesitate to ask any questions and good luck in your search! :)

You are making the right move. I've had 3 Astons in the past (V8V Nurburgring Edition, Casino Royals DBS, and V12 VS). The Murcie is on a different level. I always thought Astons were underpowered and also don't hold value. You will love the presence of the Murcie!

Thanks sam23! Any advice on searching is appreciated! I'll be new to the Lamborghini family, so things to watch for/watch out for would definitely be helpful.

I agree. My Aston is definitely underpowered, but a beautiful car nonetheless! I feel like it is time for a true supercar though. I'm sure the presence is outstanding! I live in Wyoming, so exotic cars are VERY scarce up here and make quite the statement... I'm a big DIYer and love working on my cars, so I'm really looking forward to discovering all the unique quirks of the cars and learning more about Lamborghini history!

So few manual transmissions going up for sale these days, and a lot of manual early Murci's were made with all black interiors, so it may be hard to be choosy if you want to find one with a good history (so many with accident history, rental history or some kind of bizarre story).

And unlike other cars where some people wait years to find just the perfect car for them, there's a good chance you could be priced out of the market if the manuals do what many predict and take off in value in the near future. So time is not your friend.

You could still get lucky though. Definitely search around with smaller dealers that only post their cars on their own website and not common places like eBay.

I am DIY'er, and these cars can definitely be worked on by us.

Yeah, I'm coming to discover that a lighter interior is kind of hard to come by with a manual in range I am looking. I believe that the prices for manual cars has already started to climb. That's one of the reasons I am so ready to pick one up! It's good to know that there are others out there that like working on the cars too. Do you have any dealers that you might recommend keeping an eye on? I found one a couple weeks ago that I absolutely loved at McLaren Philadelphia, but while I was doing some background checking, another salesperson at the dealership sold the car. It was only on the market for like 5 days.

McLaren Philly is where I got my Murci in Nov. My sale rep, Kevin, was a real stand up guy throughout the process.

Was that the Orange one? It looked good. The wheels and a couple of cosmetic changes weren't to my taste, but easy to change back. I think the only knock I could see on the car is that it seemed to be owned at one time by some Jersey Shore "celebrity." You can find an eBay ad still up from 2014 showing that info by googling the VIN. If that's the case, I would have to imagine it wasn't owned gently during that period.

I can't recommend any other places to look other than just scouring the Lambo dealer websites in every city and any independents that might have a good one hiding on their sites. It's a lot work.

Yep, it was the orange one! I really liked that color combo. The wheels were a little bit over the top for me as well, but thats not really a turn off for me. I kind of like to pick my own wheels anyway! Looks like I have some digging work to do then! Hopefully I can get lucky and find one soon.
